price multiplier for symbol mapping (eSignal and IB) to allow trading

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

On several instruments, prices given by data feed eSignal are 100 times different than prices given by broker Interactive Brokers.
The proposed feature is the possibility to apply a price multiplier when adding or mapping symbols between data feed and broker. It would allow to trade with IB when reading prices from eSignal.
Exemples of instruments, with recent prices:
Cotton @ ICU (NYBOT)
eSignal : CT #F, 86.61
IB : CT H2, 0.8661
 Coffee @ ICU (NYBOT)
eSignal : KC #F, 220.65
IB : KCH2, 2.2065
Sugar @ ICU (NYBOT)
eSignal : SB #F, 23.44
IB : SBH2, 0.2344
USD/JPY future @ CME
eSignal : 6J #F, 1.2872
IB : 6JH2, 0.012872

Steps to reproduce this issue

Just display prices from eSignal and IB on the listed instruments. It appears they are 100 times different.

this issue also applies to CQG data, especially Comex Silver

I think that a symple multiplyied that does affect not just the display value, but also the effective price should not be a feature so difficult to implement.

Has this issue been revisited?

The issue applies also to eSignal --> PATSYSTEM, for example on the 6J Japanese Yen Futures: 0.90000 on eSignal, 0.0090000 on PATS.

I see the problem is still here since 2011, anybody has been able to find a workaround?

Same problem with Interactive Brokers and IQFeed.
Prices for ICE Futures on IQFeed are in dollars, and in cents in IB.

Agreed for IQFeed, would appreciate if MC can apply the same price multiplier functionality for ICEUS markets for symbols such as @KC / @SB. The same feature request is under MC-2512.
